If you’re a regular web reader of jasonkemp.ca, you’ve probably noticed my new skin. This is because I’ve now switched to Subtext.
They released version 1.0 today. Congratulations to Phil Haack and the rest of the team. Despite what the people page says, my contribution was virtually non-existent. I never got around to asking Phil to remove me. Maybe now I should contribute. I’ve thought of some things I want to put in the engine. Plus, given what I went through attempting a trial install with subtext, I think I need to refresh my skills on databases and ASP.NET.
While the install would have been very smooth for a new blog, the import from .TEXT was not successful. I suspect it was because of the way my host is configured. It could never find the database. So I downloaded the source, extracted the SQL import script, and ran it through the Query Analyzer. It worked, so no big deal.
Then I had a problem posting because an emoticons.txt file was missing. I just put up an empty file in the right spot and bingo! Posted.
